Some bozzos took the fate of others into their hands

Did you see them on the beaches of Bournemouth?

As the British Prime Minister, Boris Johnson gave the first indications of an easing of lockdown restrictions following three months of isolation for many, people went berserk! Social distancing was still in place to keep people safe – no one envisaged it would be like this!

Covid-19, otherwise known as Coronavirus, has not gone away and is still lurking around to attack the vulnerable, particularly older people, many of whom are still living with anxiety. So to see images like this splashed all over the news media, was not an encouraging sight.

Some older folk that I know have told me that they won’t be going anywhere until a vaccine is found. The research scientists at Oxford University are working hard to find an effective vaccine, but although great progress has been made, at the time of writing we are still far way from finding the solution.

‘The clinical studies are progressing very well and we are now initiating studies to evaluate how well the vaccine induces immune responses in older adults, and to test whether it can provide protection in the wider population. We are very grateful to the huge support of the trial volunteers in helping test whether this new vaccine could protect humans against the pandemic coronavirus.’.

Professor Andrew Pollard, head of the Oxford Vaccine Group

OK. cut some slack. maybe!

It has been difficult for many to be locked away at home, unable to get to see family and friends. However, the whole situation has raised some important questions about how we live our lives.

Lock-down was positive for many. People I spoke to said they had enjoyed the peace and quiet, the opportunity to be creative and explore new things.

How was it for you?

Drop me a comment and let’s start the discussion going – what were some of the challenges for you. What about the positives? Has the whole experience of encountering this invisible enemy changed your attitude to life?

Are you planning on making changes going forward?
